My father [ Mark ] has passed, the result of a drunk driver of an 18 wheeler crossing into his lane and crashing head on.
I'm here to take care of any loose ends regarding his trades/swaps/sales with the members here. He has several pipes wrapped and addressed and I'll drop them in the mail Tuesday. He had several boxes on his desk with various tobacco tins inside ready to seal and send. I've helped him pack and ship tobacco/pipes/etc. to addresses all over the world. Corn Cobs to Iceland, buffing wax to Chile, a senior pipe reamer to Egypt and a huge box of tobacco sent to South Africa to mention a few, but with no current notes/addresses for these boxes I'm lost.

I'd like to ask the staff here for permission for the members to PM Mark with their concerns regarding any unfinished business, and also permission for me to return at a later date to receive that information so I can honor Dads obligations.

He was a big burly man, quiet by nature, kind and generous. I'll always remember him pipe in hand, a touch of Bourbon nearby and that easy going attitude.

Oh god, that is just awful news! Mark was a terrific brother of the briar and stand up guy that we've known here for over a decade. My deepest condolences to to his family. You all will be in my thoughts.

RIP Mark.

Oh wow. My heart sunk to see this. I didnít know him in person, but his presence here was quite notable, to put it mildly. Iím sorry for your loss. He must have been a good man, if he raised a son that would go to the trouble settle his affairs in this manner. Thank you for what youíre doing.

This was your Father's board and you can post this devastating news where ever you want. I don't think I ever met him at a show but I go back with him online for probably close to two decades. I don't know what to say but I am so sorry for your loss, this was way to soon. Please keep us informed on your Fathers arrangements.

Oh my gosh, what a shock. Condolences to the family.



As far as practical matters. If you are familiar with forums. Then the PM functions should be no surprise. But they do have size limits, and it will tell you how much space is left in each of the boxes. You may have to delete some to create space for more. Also, in those PM's you may find some evidence of any ongoing trades that others, like myself, could be unaware of. There may be addresses he requested. Anything we can do, simply ask.

I am so sorry for you and your family's loss. I know he was very respected in our community and we will always remember him. There have been quite a few that we have lost over the years. I think of them often. When I do miss the loss my next thought goes to the family of those gone. If they were so important to us, in a forum, what kind of hole does that leave for those that loved them most? I am so sorry for your loss and if we can honour him in anyway please let us know.
